Smooth, creamy carrot soup is tasty when done right, but it can easily become mundane. This version spices things up with coconut milk and curry.
Game plan: This soup can be served hot or cold. If you’re serving it cold, you may need to thin it with a little water.
Beverage pairing: Annie’s Lane Riesling, Australia. This dry-but-fruity Riesling from Australia’s Clare Valley has the acidity to cut through a heavy soup, enough citrusy spunk to embellish the carrots, and a little spice to echo the curry.
